Rihanna’s preggy style will forever change how we look at maternity wear.
And as always, she’s set the bar very high.
While nobody has nor can do maternity wear like Rihanna, Adriana Lima sure gave it her best shot when she stepped onto the red carpet at the 75th annual 2022 Cannes Film Festival in France to attend the 'Top Gun: Maverick' premiere.
The Brazilian model, who is expecting her third child, wore a black Balmain pleated gown with long billowing sleeves and exaggerated pointed shoulder details.
However, the most extraordinary feature of the dress is of course the cut-out exposing her baby bump.
She paired the look with simple strappy black heels and a sleek hairdo.
While the former Victoria’s Secret Angel’s maternity look was undeniably dramatic and certainly one for the books, Rihanna’s fans didn’t see it as anything special.
Twitter was on fire not to praise Lima’s look but to praise the Fenty Beauty owner and her ability to effortlessly set trends.
“Rihanna influence on Maternity fashion will go down in f***ing HISTORY” said @wiz_thcreator.

While @Its_Reece commented, “Rihanna is the greatest trendsetter of our generation.”
“Rihanna put the pressure on all the girlies to step up/ glam up their pregnancy looks” commented @SJT

In response to a post by MEFeater Magazine, @jenicabethia referred to Rihanna’s influence as “the Fenty effect.”
